Savannah offers plenty of outdoor activities to enjoy the best of the Lowcountry. There’s something for everyone here. Tybee Island, including Savannah, GA beaches, offers breathtaking kayak tours, wildlife refuge centers, and historic lighthouse adventures.
Tybee means “salt” to Native Americans, but the name of this low-key seaside resort now brings to mind words such as, “sun”, “sand”, and “fun”! Located 18 miles east of Savannah, this small barrier island boasts a wide, three-mile long beach that is perfect for sunbathing, people-watching, and frolicking in the waves of the Atlantic Ocean. The island’s south-end pier and pavilion is a splendid venue for strolling above the ocean and fishing. See the movie, “The Last Song”, starring Miley Cyrus, which was filmed on Tybee Island!
